# Which nets make a closed cube?

## Which nets make a closed cube?

In fact, there are 11 shape nets that make a cube. The diagram below shows 16 different arrangements of 6 squares that all look like they could be cube nets, but 6 of them are not. Can you work out which are valid nets of a cube? The answer is that 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14 and 15 are all valid nets of a cube.

How many nets does a closed cube have?

eleven nets
There are exactly eleven nets that will form a cube.

What is the net of an open cube?

When the square faces of a cube are separated at the edges and laid out flat they make a two dimensional figure called a net.

### Which of these nets can fold to make a cube and why?

Now, by observing the figures given in the question, only those nets can be used which results in a cube by folding them. Only the nets in (ii), (iii), (iv), and (vi) can be used to make cubes.

Which of the following is a net for a cube?

Nets of a Solids

Shapes Net Faces
Cube (ii) 6
Cuboid (iii) 6
Cone (iv) 2
Cylinder (i) 3

What is a net pattern?

A net is defined as a pattern obtained when a three-dimensional figure is laid out flat, showing each face of the figure. A 3-D shape may have different nets.

## What is net diagram?

Net diagram is a 2-dimensional plane figure which can be folded to form a 3-dimensional figure. Or we can say net diagrams are the figures which obtained by unfolding some 3D figures. For example, A cube can be unfolded into several ways or we can open the cube in different ways which forms different shapes.
